September 11, 2017

TEHRAN – Mahmoud Saikal, the permanent representative of Afghanistan to the UN, has said that Iran has always stood beside the Afghans in fighting terrorism.

Iran has always played an important positive role in developments in Afghanistan, he told IRNA in an interview.

“The two countries have many affinities such as language, religion and culture. So, our relations are historic. The two countries have lived together based on mutual respect and will continue to live so,” he explained.
